It was late but it was great for the Millers as they scored twice in the last three minutes to rescue a point against fellow strugglers Huddersfield.

Jonson Clarke-Harris and Lee Frecklington netted in the 88th and 90th minute to secure a brilliant fight back for Steve Evans’ side in front of a full house at the New York.

Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield had looked well on their way to the three points when Conor Coady added a second after James Vaughan opened the scoring.

Vaughan tapped in after 35 minutes with former Sheffield United man Coady heading home just after the hour.

The Terriers had been well worth their lead as Rotherham struggled to find fluidity.

And Huddersfield could easily have added to their lead before the Millers began their excellent comeback.

First substitute Clarke-Harris secured the lifeline with a header.

And then Frecklington drilled in from just outside the area to snatch a share of the spoils.
